Is cut scene one or two words. I've only seen it as two words or with a hyphen (cut-scene). Gflores Talk 02:22, 28 January 2006 (UTC)

I would recommend someone to put a source website in Wikipedia's Cutscene information where every visitor would able to watch video game's cutscenes.

Weren't the first video game cutscenes found in 1979's Pac-Man? They weren't very sophisticated, but they seem to meet all the requirements. Asat 05:36, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

  • I was going to mention 1986's Castlevania, with the opening sequence of the player character walking up to the castle gate, but you may have a point. 68.44.13.236 03:43, 9 May 2007 (UTC)


Ron Gilbert on the origin of cutscenes[edit]

[1]:

If you don't blink, you also see the worlds first cut-scene. It's a cut to Sandy and Dr. Fred in his lab. I named them "cut-scenes" (it was also the name of the SCUMM command) because they literally cut away from the action. Games before Maniac Mansion had non-interactive scenes that would play between levels or after a big event, but the ones in Maniac Mansion are different. They cut away. get it? cut-scene. Oh, how I can amuse myself.

Self-amusement aside, I consider the way Maniac Mansion did cut-scenes to be one of the biggest mistakes of the game. In later games like Monkey Island, the cut-scenes happen only in response to an action by the player. They were no longer tied to an arbitrary timer.

First QTE and pre-rendered cutscenes?[edit]

Just wanted to mention that Die Hard Arcade had quick time events before Shenmue. I'm not sure which was the first game to have pre-rendered cutscenes, but it definitely wasn't Final Fantasy 7. The phrasing may make it read that way even though I believe the intent was to mention that it was the first Final Fantasy with pre-rendered scenes. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.125.20.147 (talk) 16:06, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

why so called[edit]

Why is it called "Cut-scene" - what's being cut ? 86.175.241.2 (talk) 18:38, 29 May 2011 (UTC)

It's movie jargon. They cut away from the gameplay to show you another scene. So it's a scripted scene that interrupts the usually continuous game play. — trlkly 10:55, 17 September 2011 (UTC)

I would like more on the etymology of the term 'cutscene' in the article. It's a well established term within the videogame community, but while talking with my brother and a friend recently we threw the term "cutscene" back and fourth and our friend (a non-game) had no idea what we were talking about. While the 'cutaway' etymology is sound, it would be nice if there were any articles citing the first use of the term. The Maniac Mansion quote above is interesting and could be the source, if true. 82.0.16.12 (talk) 20:23, 16 October 2013 (UTC)
